Palace, landmarks...wait, carrots? (Postcard war continued)

"This is probably the ugliest postcard in Helsinki", I told the lady on the other side of the counter when reaching her Euro. She went all red and laughed in agreement. Her theory is that the owner of the shop - a man - thinks what a woman would not think: carrots and presidential palaces equate as the most important features when representing Finland.

Some of the previous postcard wars:
the Star Wars one,
the historical one,
the plain cute one

Which reminds me: Brazilian post is so slow, I should write and wish Lygia Merry Chistmas next week or so. It seriously took her letter three months to reach me last time, so I guess it is the same process the other way around.
